The Buns

Top Bun

  1. Separate the hair for the bun*

  2. Secure the bottom so that it does not get in the way

  3. Choose your technique to create your top bun**

*The key to the top bun is to leave enough hair out on the sides to get a nice curl

**I prefer the wrap around, or roll under method for my top bun


Space Buns

  1. Separate the hair in half, to create two sections

  2. Choose the height & your technique to create your space buns*

  3. Shape your space buns to make them similar

  4. Lay your hair down with a scarf to ensure smooth edges

*You can wear them high or low. I prefer the twist around or pull through method for my space buns


Side Bun

(can be used for formal occasions)

  1. Dampen hair

  2. Part & move hair over to the side you'd like your bun

  3. Separate top area into manageable sections to slick down top and sides

  4. Smooth the hair into a ponytail, using your preferred technique for the bun

  5. Fluff out and shape as desired for a nice large side bun

  6. Pull out curls by the ear or opposite side of the bun to enhance the look

If your hair is in need of moisture be sure to dampen

your hair and apply your Mane Temptation Oil to your scalp.

You can also apply your Mane Temptation Moisturizer to damp hair

during styling, if you find your styles need more definition or life.
